We were looking for a cheap place for two nights for a family of four. This motel was cheap, and did the job. It's probably past its use-by date in some ways, but our beds were clean and warm, the shower worked fine and the place did the job for us. However, the heat pump only put out cool air,... More

Stayed one night, accommodation was scarce in Christchurch and only wanted 1 night until we flew out the next morning. Our room backed onto the owner/manager's room and the walls were not noiseproof. Towels were old and hard, carpet worn, small kitchenette with old appliances and everthing was a bit grubby.
